At the end of last year I had a running technique analysis session with Neil Scholes from Kinetic Revolution. It was organised by my triathlon club and was extremely useful. You can read all about that session here. With more than a thousand running miles under my belt since the last session I thought it was time […]
Ben Nevis was the first Munro that I ever climbed. For those of you that don’t know: A Munro is any Scottish mountain peak that rises higher than 3000 feet above sea level, and Ben Nevis is the biggest, topping out at 4409 feet. That first time was nearly 15 years ago and we went […]

It promised to be a moderately hilly eight mile running race predominantly along trails and through fields, all in a picturesque setting with stunning views of Dartmoor and South Devon. This year it […]
Here are two useful stretches for hip mobility that you can do while warming up. I originally came across them in this article from James Dunne of Kinetic Revolution who posts some really useful information on running form.
I have written this post in the form of a letter to my followers, read on to find out why. Dear All, I am afraid that I have pulled out of the Ocean Floor Race. I have no doubt about my ability to complete the race, but I am somewhat intimidated by the political situation […]

Originally I was going to be competing in Ironman Wales this year which features those very distances, all to […]
